The Blind Spot: Science and the Crisis of Uncertainty

In today's unpredictable and chaotic global, we glance to technological know-how to supply sure bet and answers--and usually blame it while issues get it wrong. The Blind Spot finds why our religion in clinical sure bet is a perilous phantasm, and the way purely by way of embracing science's inherent ambiguities and paradoxes do we actually savour its attractiveness and harness its strength.

Volcanoes: Global Perspectives

Volcanoes are crucial components within the smooth worldwide stability of elemental forces that govern either the dynamic evolution of the Earth and the character of lifestyles itself. with out volcanic task, lifestyles as we all know it is going to no longer exist on our planet. even if attractive to behold, volcanoes also are possibly harmful, and knowing their nature is necessary to avoid significant demise sooner or later.

The Legacy of Albert Einstein: A Collection of Essays in Celebration of the Year of Physics

This vital quantity incorporates a compendium of articles masking an unlimited variety of subject matters in physics which have been began or motivated by means of the works of Albert Einstein: targeted relativity, quantum concept, statistical physics, condensed topic physics, normal relativity, geometry, cosmology and unified box conception.

A mind-bending myth of technology, philosophy, paintings, heritage, and love. Fifty-five million years in the past, in the course of the early Eocene interval, a surprising burst of lightning anxious a herd of small prehistoric horses. within the resulting panic, one of many horses, a five-year-old mare no higher than a fox terrier, fell right into a lake and drowned. On June twenty third, 1975, in Austin, Texas, a drop of oil combusted in a motor vehicle engine. This tiny explosion occurred simply because the Ford Pinto, pushed by way of a one-armed hitchhiker named Jimmy, pulled into the car parking zone of the bushes Creek flats, domestic to the younger lady within the passenger seat, a twenty-two-year-old biology scholar named Clarissa Sanders.

Machine is the tale of the hidden connections among those likely unrelated occasions. Omnivorous in its pursuit of information? each one in all its eighty-eight pages a bold mix of truth and fiction, technological know-how and artwork? this brief novel relentlessly pursues certainly one of life's nice mysteries: the place does destiny finish and accident commence?

Fat separation is less of a problem where the joint is sold as lean alone, as would be the case for pig loins comprising solely the longissimus dorsi muscle. Pig Meat and Carcass Quality Fig. 6 Influence of fat thickness upon fat quality: curve (a) relates to pigs fed diets especially high in unsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic, while (b) relates to pigs fed diets especially low in unsaturated fatty acids. 19 Fig. 7 As fat depth reduces, the tendency for fat to split increases. Fig. 8 Position of intrascope probe measurements P1 (45 mm), P2 (65 mm) and P3 (80 mm) from the mid-line taken at the last rib.

ELISA tests of meat juices at the slaughterhouse suggest that 15–25% of European pigs have been challenged with Salmonella. This is not to say that they are carrying the organism, nor that they present any risk, but it is to say that some level of the organism shared the pig’s environment at some time. The pattern tends to be of many herds that are completely free, some that carry low levels and a very few that carry high levels. This means that schemes targeting herds with repeatedly high counts are likely to be successful in reducing the incidence in a national pig population as a whole.

Positive results can elicit an eradication programme targeted at the farm environment, the feed, the buildings and of course the pigs themselves. Farms repeatedly found in the highest bracket of contamination may be excluded from the quality assurance scheme. Such programmes are proving successful in reducing Salmonella on pig farms. There is presently no clear line on the point of principle as to whether FarmAssured livestock products should be the exception, defining quality superior to the norm, or the rule, defining the expected standard.
